Just a few reminders for OA candidates:
1. Please arrive NO LATER than 8:30 pm in Class A uniform tomorrow night.
2. Dress appropriately for sleeping outside (lots of layers, hats, gloves, etc). The weather is expected to go down to the high 30s at night. You NEED a tarp: not only is it ground cover, it can be wrapped around you to block out the elements.
3. You MUST bring a copy of your medical with you and submit it at check-in.
There is a dual meeting tonight for the 10 OA candidates and their parents at St. Adalberts Parish Hall (basement) on 84th Street at 7:30 pm.
For parents: There will be an information session regarding this weekend’s trip.
For candidates: Scouts please come in Class A uniform for the youth meeting.
All scouts are invited to attend the Eagle Court of Honor and Dinner on Saturday, June 6, if you planning on attending please either:
• Sign up tonight on the sign-up sheet by the kitchen window
• Reply to Troop106gnyc@gmail.com by May 27th
Please note that scouts should arrive on Saturday June 6 in Full Class A uniform at 5pm.
Regardless of whether or not you are attending, we need help setting up the room at 7 pm on Friday, June 5 (no uniforms required).
The troop will not be organizing transport for this. We strongly suggest that the parents of scouts going come down Friday at 7-730 and chat with each other and figure out transport.
Summer camp is $365/week if paid before 5/22. Checks must be made out to “GNYC” . If you pay after 5/22 the price goes up to $395/week.
For those joining us from another troop the price is $10 higher, as we are entitled to a $10/week discount for early rechartering (so those prices would be $375/week for early bird, or $405/week for late), and that only applies to those on our charter. Also, we will need a check for $15/week made out to “Troop 106″ which covers: incidentals, Class B t-shirt, pizza party, paper-ware, etc.
For those in Troop 106, the $15/week extra does not apply, as the troop will pick up that cost.
In regards to medicals if your son is going for 1 week, use the 1 week medical. And if they are going for 2 weeks you must use the 2 week medical.
I will also need the medical (including front and back of insurance card) & merit badge schedule at that time (see links below)
Any questions direct to Mike

3. Early Bird Summer Camp Fee is due before 5/22- $375/week made out to GNYC.
The troop won or placed in various events at the Camp-o-ree & 1 of our patrols came in Second Place Overall. Congrats to Sal’s Patrol who named themselves The Best Patrol Here.
Also, 10 Youth & 2 adults were tapped out to be inducted into the Order of the Arrow. Likely more than any other troop in NYC this year.
I am really happy to see how the troop is growing & moving from good to great.
*** This only applies to those who are already members of the OA (NOT those who may have been elected to enter the OA this year)***
Today is the last day to get the early bird price of $32, it goes up to $40 tomorrow.
